Hawaiian War Chant

Hawaiian War Chant
(Ta-Hu-Wa-Hu-Wai)
51a-lakGBqL._SX300_
There’s a sunny little, funny little melody
That was started by a native down in Waikiki
He would gather a crowd down beside the sea
And together they’d play his gay Hawaiian Chant
Soon the other little natives started singin’ it
And the hula hula maidens starting swingin’ it
Like a tropical storm that’s the way it hit
Funny little gay Hawaiian chant
Hawaiian War
Au we ta huala
Au we ta huala
Tho it started on an island down Hawaii way
It’s as popular in Tennessee or Ioway
If you wander into any cabaret
You will hear this gay Hawaiian chant

Paramount Ranch, Agoura, California

LOVE YOUR MOTHER EARTH!

Earth (AKA “the World” or “the Globe”) is the third planet from the Sun and is the birthplace of humanity and the cradle of human civilization.

earth-day-2017-5650394117046272-s‘s Earth Day Doodle!

Earth is approximately 4.6 billion years old. The oldest known rocks are about 4 billion years old (rocks older than 3 billion years are rare) and the oldest fossils of living organisms are less than 3.9 billion years old. With a radius of 3,959 miles, Earth is the biggest of the known terrestrial planets, and the fifth largest in our solar system.

Planet Earth, Sol System, Milky Way Galaxy, Universe

71 Percent of the Earth’s surface is covered with water. Earth’s atmosphere is 77% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, with traces of argon, carbon dioxide and water (H20). Earth’s oceans have an average depth of about 2.5 miles and contains 97 percent of the planet’s water. Earth has a central (inner and outer) core, a rocky mantle and a solid crust.

The name “Earth” is at least 1,000 years old and it is the only planet whose name doesn’t come from from Greek or Roman mythology. The name is from Old English and Germanic origins and means “ground”.

Earth orbits the sun and completes one daily rotation every 23.9 hours. It takes 365.25 days to complete a one year trip around the sun.  The Earth’s axis is tilted 23.4 degrees to the plane of the planet’s orbit around the sun and this causes the cycle of seasons.

Earth is the only known planet that has a single moon. The moon is (an average distance of) 238,855 miles away from Earth.

We Can Run
by John Barlow & Brent Mydland

We don’t own this place though we act as if we did
It belongs to the children of our children’s kids
The actual owners haven’t even been born yet

But we never tend the garden and we rarely pay the rent
Most of it is broken and the rest of it is bent
Put it all on plastic and I wonder where we’ll be when the bills hit

We can run but we can’t hide from it
Of all possible worlds we only got one, we gotta ride on it
Whatever we’ve done we’ll never get far from what we leave behind
Baby we can run, run, run but we can’t hide

Well I’m dumping my trash in your back yard
Making certain you don’t notice really isn’t so hard
You’re so busy with your guns and all of your excuses to use them

Well it’s oil for the rich and babies for the poor
We’ve got everyone believing that more is more
If a reckoning comes maybe we’ll know what to do then

We can run but we can’t hide from it
Of all possible worlds we only got one, we gotta ride on it
Whatever we’ve done we’ll never get far from what we leave behind
Baby we can run, run, run but we can’t hide

All these complications seem to leave no choice
I heard the tongues of billions speak with just one voice
Saying just leave all the rest to me, I need it worse than you, you see
Then I heard the sound of one child crying

Today I went out walking in the amber wind
There’s a hole in the sky where the light pours in
I remember the days when I wasn’t afraid of the sunshine

But now it beats down on the ashphalt land
Like a hammering blow from God’s left hand
What little still grows
Cringes in the shade till the night-time

We can run but we can’t hide from it
Of all possible worlds we only got one, we gotta ride on it
Whatever we’ve done we’ll never get far from what we leave behind
Baby we can run, run, run but we can’t hide (….no, we can’t hide.)

Horses in the field
With a view of the ocean
Hana-Maui Ranch

Blue skies and contrails
Tuesday morning in April 
Good morning Valley!

Puppies on my bed
My furry little babies
So much energy!

Living the good life!
Keepin’ it clean and sober
One day at a time.

The dogs are barking.
Is there somebody out there?
What walks in the dark?

Pastrami sandwich
On the beach in Malibu
Picnic by the sea

Saturday full moon
The owl in the pine tree calls
California!

Who? Who? calls the owl
Over and over it cries
Who is it seeking?

A warm night in March
Sushi dinner comfort food
Full moon on Sunday

Start the day over
Want to crawl under my desk
Curl up with the dogs

Two sleeping puppies
Oh my sweet little babies
After breakfast nap

Let sleeping dogs lie.
What do puppies dream about?
Please don’t wake them up!

Lahaina Sunset
Party on the Patio
Maui, Hawaii

Stars in the night sky
Shine on crazy diamonds
Sing to the darkness

Puppy in the pen
Where is the “Little Bandit”?
Sleeping on the bed

Sunshine on my face
One more day in paradise
City of Angels

It’s just a beautiful day!

16265304_10154671974088429_5576860841048156140_n

This morning former Director Jon Jarvis made this statement about recent events involving the National Park Service:

“I have been watching the Trump administration trying unsuccessfully to suppress the National Park Service with a mix of pride and amusement. The NPS is the steward of America’s most important places and the narrator of our most powerful stories, told authentically, accurately, and built upon scientific and scholarly research. The Park Ranger is a trusted interpreter of our complex natural and cultural history and a voice that cannot not be suppressed. Edicts from on-high have directed the NPS to not talk about “national policy”, but permission is granted to use social media for visitor center hours and safety. The ridiculousness of such a directive was immediately resisted and I am not the least bit surprised. So at Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site in Atlanta should we not talk about his actions to secure the rights to vote for African Americans in the south, or is that too “national policy”? At Stonewall National Monument in New York City, shall we only talk about the hours you can visit the Inn or is it “national policy” to interpret the events there in 1969 that gave rise to the LGBT movement? Shall we only talk about the historic architecture of the Washington, DC home of Alice Paul and Alva Belmont or is it too “national policy” to suggest their decades of effort to secure the rights of women can be linked directly to the women’s marches in hundreds of cities last weekend? And as we scientifically monitor the rapid decline of glaciers in Glacier National Park, a clear and troubling indicator of a warming planet, shall we refrain from telling this story to the public because the administration views climate change as “national policy”? These are not “policy” issues, they are facts about our nation, it is how we learn and strive to achieve the ideals of our founding documents. To talk about these facts is core to the mission of the NPS. During the Centennial of the National Park Service, we hosted over 300 million visitors (now that is huge) to the National Parks and most came away inspired, patriotic and ready to speak on behalf of the values we hold most dear. The new Administration would be wise to figure out how to support the National Park Service, its extraordinary employees and their millions of fans.”

NOTE: A freeze on federal government hiring was instituted on January 24, 2017 by executive order. The memo, which does not apply to military personnel, states that “no vacant positions existing at noon on January 22, 2017, may be filled and no new positions may be created, except in limited circumstances”

Trump put a freeze on federal government hiring, and it could seriously impact the National Park Service and the need to hire thousands of seasonal rangers and other employees for the summer! Beyond seasonal positions, there are many permanent positions that parks are trying to fill and people who have already been offered permanent jobs but haven’t begun working… this will definitely affect the visitor experience and park safety!

“O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties. Above the fruited plain! 
America! America! G-d shed his grace on thee.”
– America the Beautiful
from a poem written by Katharine Lee Bates in 1893
(after a visit to Pikes Peak in Colorado)
music composed by Samuel A. Ward

Pikes Peak, named in honor of American explorer Zebulon Pike, is one of the highest summit of the Rocky Mountains in North America. The 14,115-foot mountain top is located in Pike National Forest, 12 miles southwest of downtown Colorado Springs. The summit of Pikes Peak is a high alpine environment with a polar climate due to its elevation. Snowfall is possible year round at the top and thunderstorms are common in the summertime. Pikes Peak, above 14000 feet, was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1961.

Monday. Blue Monday.

Blue Monday.

Just take it easy…. (you’re not alone)

“Blue Monday, how I hate blue Monday/Got me workin’ like a slave all day
Here comes Tuesday, oh hard Tuesday/I’m so tired, I’ve got no time to play
Here come Wednesday I’m beat to my side/My girl calls, I gotta tell her that I’m out
‘Cause Thursday is a hard-workin’ day and Friday I get my pay
Saturday morning, oh, Saturday morning/All my tired has gone away
Got my money and my honey/And I’m out on the scene to play
Sunday morning my head is bad/But it’s worth it, all the times I had
But I’ve got to get my rest/Cause Monday is a mess”
– sung by Fats Domino, written by Dave Bartholomew

Blue Monday is typically the third Monday of January reported to be the most depressing day of the year…

Seasonal depression factors (bad weather, holiday bills, politics, etc.) are coming together this year on Blue Monday and additional concerns make 2017’s this Blue Monday even more depressing than other years.

“The deaths of so many celebrities, many in their 50s and 60s, has also worried people by reminding them of their own mortality.”

NOTE: The day after election day, November 9, 2016, overall happiness fell to around 55 points, the lowest ever recorded since the app began, and lower than any other Blue Mondays according to the Mappiness database.

“In almost six and a half years, there has been no day more miserable than Wednesday 9 Nov, the day the US election was called for Donald Trump.”

Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. It affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and depression may make you feel as if life isn’t worth living.

If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, get help right away!

“DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY!” – Bobby McFerrin

“Here’s a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note-for-note
Don’t worry, be happy
In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry, you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy Don’t worry, be happy now
Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo hoo-hoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry
Woo-oo-woo-oo-woo-oo-ooo Be happy
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry, be happy!”

“Don’t worry, be happy
‘Cause when you worry your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down
Don’t worry, be happy!”

Clara Peller asks “Where’s The Beef?” in 1984

Beef is the name for meat from cattle.
Beef can be harvested from bulls, cows, heifers or steers.

“Let’s Play Know Your Cuts of Meat!” – David Letterman

Beef muscle (MEAT) is cut into roasts, short ribs or steaks.
Cuts: filet mignon, sirloin steak, rump steak, rib steak, rib eye steak, hanger steak, etc.
Some cuts are processed (corned beef and beef jerky) and trimmings are ground, minced or used in sausages. Blood is used in some varieties of blood sausage.
Other parts: the oxtail, liver, tongue, tripe from the reticulum or rumen, glands (the pancreas and thymus are called sweetbreads), the heart, the brain, the kidneys and testicles (called calf friesprairie oysters or Rocky Mountain oysters in the U.S.) are eaten too. Some intestines are cooked and eaten, but more often they are cleaned and used as natural sausage casings. The bones are used for making beef stock and gelatin.

Beef is the third most consumed meat in the world, accounting for about 25% of meat production worldwide (after pork 38% and poultry 30%).

“Where’s The Beef?”

Beef is first divided into primal cuts during butchering.
Primal cuts are large pieces of meat initially separated from the animal’s carcass.
Steaks and other subdivisions are cut from these basic sections.

How did “Where’s The Beef?” become a part of the American vocabulary and an all-purpose phrase questioning the substance of an idea, event or product?

clara_peller_publicity_headshot
Clara Peller (August 4, 1902 – August 11, 1987) was a manicurist and American character actress. Born on August 4, 1902 in Russia, she came to the United States at the age of 5 with an uncle and lived in Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 81, Clara starred in the 1984 “Where’s The Beef?” advertising campaign for Wendy’s restaurants, created by the Dancer Fitzgerald Sample advertising agency.
clara-peller

At age 80, Clara was hired as a manicurist for a television commercial set in a Chicago barbershop. Impressed by her no-nonsense manners and unique voice, the agency signed her. She was hard of hearing and had emphysema, which limited her ability to speak long lines of dialogue, and she appeared in many TV commercials. She first attracted attention as a comical cleaning lady in an ad for the new Massachusetts State Lottery game “Megabucks” in the late 1970s and later became a national cultural phenomenon  in a series of commercials for the Wendy’s Restaurant chain.

First aired on January 10, 1984, the Wendy’s commercial “Fluffy Bun” portrayed a fictional competitor “Home of the Big Bun” where three elderly ladies are complaining about an enormous hamburger bun containing a tiny hamburger patty. Two of the women comment on the size of the bun and they are interrupted by Peller’s character, who looks around in vain  while making the outraged demand: “Where’s The Beef?”

“Where’s The Beef?” became a catchphrase (before viral video) across the United States.
The actress made the three-word phrase a cultural phenomenon, achieved Andy Warhol’s “15 minutes of fame” and became an instant star. Sequels to the spots featured her yelling her famous line in various scenes and her face and the slogan were merchandised on shirts, hats, buttons, mugs, glasses, bumper stickers, frisbees, games, a commemorative plate, and all sorts of other products. Nashville songwriter and DJ Coyote McCloud wrote and performed a hit song entitled “Where’s the Beef?” released as a promotional single for Wendy’s featuring Clara Peller.

“Where’s The Beef?” – The Game!

Wendy’s sales jumped 31% to $945 million in 1985 worldwide. Wendy’s Senior VP of Communications Denny Lynch said at the time that “with Clara we accomplished as much in five weeks as we did in 14½ years.” Former Vice-President Walter Mondale also used the line in his bid for the Democratic nomination in the 1984 presidential campaign.

The campaign ended in 1985 when Clara did a commercial for Campbell’s Prego pasta sauce, where she declares “I found it! I really found it!” After the Prego commercial aired, Wendy’s management decided to terminate her contract. Clara’s response: “I’ve made them millions and they don’t appreciate me.” Following her termination and the conclusion of the “Where’s The Beef?” campaign, Wendy’s suffered a 2 year sales slump and consumer awareness of the Wendy’s brand did not recover for another five years!

clarapeller

NOTE: According to an A&E biography, “Where’s The Beef?” was actually an error made by Clara who was supposed to say “Where’s all the beef?” And another story says the line was shortened because of her emphysema.

Clara was paid scale for the first commercial and claimed she only made about $30,000 from the commercials, but Wendy’s claimed she was paid about $500,000 for her work. Clara also appeared in other commercials, did interviews and guest spots (including a cameo on “Saturday Night Live” in April 1984), made other appearances, and she had a small role in the feature film “Moving Violations.”

Clara Peller died in on August 11, 1987, one week after her 85th birthday.

Everyone knows his song “The Gambler”
so please enjoy an earlier hit from way-wayback:

Kenny Rogers and The First Edition
“Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)”

Lip-synced performance from the “Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour” television show:

Live Vocal (with canned music) performance for television 1968:

Live Performance from the “Kenny Rogers Rollin’ On The River” television show and the “Remember the 70’s” DVD:

“Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)”
written by Mickey Newbury and first recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis in 1967

(Yeah, yeah, oh, yeah) / (What condition my condition was in)

I woke up this mornin’ with the sundown shinin’ in.
I found my mind in a brown paper bag within.
I tripped on a cloud and fell-a eight miles high
I tore my mind on a jagged sky.
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in.

(Yeah, yeah, oh, yeah) / (What condition my condition was in)

I pushed my soul in a deep dark hole and then I followed it in.
I watched myself crawlin’ out as I was a-crawlin’ in.
I got up so tight I couldn’t unwind,
I saw so much I broke my mind.
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in.

(Yeah, yeah, oh, yeah) / (What condition my condition was in)

Someone painted “April Fool” in big black letters on a “Dead End” sign.
I had my foot on the gas as I left the road and blew out my mind.
Eight miles outta Memphis and I got no spare,
Eight miles straight up downtown somewhere.
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in.

(Yeah, yeah, oh, yeah…)

Produced by Mike Post. Some top studio musicians including Glen Campbell and Hal Blaine played the backing music and Post used effects, like phasing and backward mastering innovated by The Beatles, to give the song the psychedelic sound of the 60’s. It was released in 1968 to lukewarm reception until it was performed (lip-synced in a psychedelic video) on the “Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour” television show.
The song hit #5 on the “Billboard Hot 100”.

“Gutterballs” dream from the film “The Big Lebowski” with the song as the soundtrack:
